    I've seen quite a few toy trucks on flat beds, and I've seen a lot of big cow bells and fake ball sacks on bull racks. When the pandemic first started, I saw a flat bedder with a single package of toilet paper strapped down on his trailer.

    Most flatbed drivers put it at the end of their trailer. it really helps keep you from flat spotting the trailer tires under hard breaking. You always want a little extra weight back there. In dry vans we use a fake pallet of water but you don't see it because it's inside. Reefer drivers like to palletize plastic kids pretend food and put it inside. Just trying to make the roads a little safer for everybody else, why not join our safety effort?

    That was a high value load, I heard he got paid 8k to deliver it 200 miles away.

    When the pandemic first started and people were hoarding TP, I was thinking about putting a sticker on the side of my truck that said:

    Driver carries no cash or toilet paper

    I remember when I was a kid seeing a flatbed with a Tonka dump truck strapped into it. I thought it was the coolest thing. Little things like that only take a minute to do and the driver has no idea a kid will remember it 25 years later.

    Age old question: Do you smoke after sex...?
    Significant other answer: "I don't know. I have never looked to see."

    Some for brag, some for need... Some just for fun. Always thought in depended on the individual drivers thoughts and desires. Just saying ya know.

    Now could the DOT pull you into a scale for this? Technically you're loaded, I've seen Comifornia pull guy in for dunage on the deck.
